San Francisco's Meat-Free Mondays get shrug from residents
SAN FRANCISCO -- Besides approving rules against using plastic grocery bags, mixing recycling with compost and smoking in sidewalk cafes, San Francisco supervisors have passed a resolution asking residents to observe meatless Mondays.
San Francisco supervisors passed the resolution Tuesday for no-meat Mondays in their latest legislative endorsement of healthy, eco-conscious living.
It cannot stop the city's residents from eating meat. Instead, it is meant to call attention to the relationship between diet and climate change.
To some, the resolution is a welcome reminder of the small part that residents play in solving a larger problem. Others, however, were left asking for Board of Supervisor-Free Fridays.
Most shrugged it off as another one of those "only in San Francisco" initiatives that many forget about soon after passage.
